The Harry Packer mansion was a special treat. It was quiet but only a short walk from the shops, restaurants, and museums in town. The carriage house room was quiet and private but not as fancy as the rooms in the main house. The hostess made a delicious breakfast and gave us helpful suggestions about where to eat and what...

Recently we attended the Murder Mystery Weekend and had a fabulous time. "Inspector" Bob, our friendly innkeeper and murder mystery host, was a wealth of information about the area and the Packer family. He kept us laughing while our characters sorted through the evidence to find the murderer. We actually got to know the other couples attending the weekend, and... More

I stayed in Cottage number 2, in the carriage house. It was very clean, the queen sized bed was in the loft. It was built in the 1860's but has all up to date amenities. Breakfast was delicious. If you love staying in a mansion this is for you. If you love looking at craftsmanship and learning a little of... More

We had a wonderful stay in this 1874 Victorian mansion. I would highly recommend it! Very convenient to Jim Thorpe for walking to town. We'll be going back again. The innkeepers were very attentive to our needs and we had a great stay. They have special events that include a murder mystery weekend.

My significant other and I stood in Gussie's room for the murder mystery weekend for my birthday and we had an amazing time. Bob and Pat were extremely accommodating. I highly recommend the murder mystery weekend or just stay and visit this amazing house!!!

This Muder Mystery Weekend was my wife, Sue's, surprise birthday gift. What a perfect way to spend her celebration! Our hosts, owners Bob and Patty, could not have been more welcoming, helpful, or accommodating. The mansion has, over many years, though their dedicated hard work, been restored to its glorious and exquisite past beauty. Our "Annie's Suite" was cozy and... More

This was a fantastic getaway, The owner and his family did such a great job of making us feel at home. They opened there home to us, providing both comfort and charm that seems missing in today's world. We attended the murder mystery weekend which I highly recommend Bob is a great storyteller and wove a web that was entertaining... More

Of all the places and experiences I have had, this ranks among the best! The Harry Packer Mansion is more than just a place to stay when you visit Jim Thorpe, it is an experience to be remembered. Make sure to take part in the Murder Mystery event weekends when visiting. The package includes so much for the small price... More

I was looking for something different to celebrate my Birthday. I wanted a place rich in history, not too far from NYC and somewhere I hadn't been before. A friend suggested Jim Thorpe, PA and as I started my research, I quickly found the Harry Packer Mansion. I was sold instantly. Pat was really great with email, so it was... More
